    Where do you get your source from that SPR is empty? That's a big accusation.

  • How Tesla's Deceptive Self-Defined Gross Margin REALLY Compares To Porsche's [View article]
    To play devil's advocate, maybe they drop this below the COGS line because its difficult to assign it on a per vehicle basis since R&D for Tesla is used to develop anything from battery efficiency / software upgrade/ charging infrastructure - these are cost that is used not just for any particular model. And to track R&D expense/ vehicle for a company like Tesla would add unnecessary cost. I am sure when the company matured then it can add it back to above the COGS line.

  • Chesapeake to sell Marcellus, Utica assets to Southwestern for $5.375B [View news story]
    Nothing wrong with being smaller and more profitable. Having more assets do not always generate more synergies.

  • Thoughts On Suncor's Strategy [View article]
    There's nothing unique about ANY oil business Beckmill. Those are the strategies that differentiate you from the other oil companies. Nothing wrong with that. It's a commodity business.

  • 10%+ Dividend Payer Annaly Capital Is Still A Safe Place To Put Your Money [View article]
    At the current rates environment, I just don't see upside for mREITs. They can still pass on interest paid on the mortgages and of course they can buy new issuances as rates rises (take a hit on existing positions while making higher spread on new positions). But I just don't see a situation here for mreit to increase profit - long - short term yield spread has to steepen but offset by mortgage issuance

  • 10%+ Dividend Payer Annaly Capital Is Still A Safe Place To Put Your Money [View article]
    If rates rise - the current mortgage holdings value fall as with any fixed income securities. If rates drop - mortgage holders refinance with the lower rates causing high prepayment rates and narrower spread and profitability. Almost a lose-lose scenario with mREITs at the current enviornment.

  • Why Investing In Chesapeake Energy Is Not A Good Idea [View article]

    This is a turnaround story. Not a gamble on LNG export. If APA/APC/EOG can drill domestically - and be profitable - there is no reason why CHK cannot do so under a more prudent management and deploy capital in a more careful way.

    Leveraged up the hill isn't so bad since it lower your cost of capital - as long as you generate enough cash flow to service your debt, high debt does not mean bad capital structure.

  • Statoil may pick east coast over Alberta oil sands for new expansions [View news story]
    Cost isn't the issue. The issue is shale gas can run out. The oil sands can last and you want to throw Canada into the mix so you don't become overly dependent on one energy source. That's common sense.

  • Devon to put Canadian gas assets up for sale as low prices bite [View news story]
    Natural gas is difficult to transport oversea. All the LNG terminals have to be up before anyone can take advantage of the price diff b/w North America and Asia. Plus NG wells do not deplete like oil does.

  • JetBlue: A Stock All Value Investors Should Consider [View article]
    "JBLU still has enough growth stock characteristics that I think it could sell for 12x (assuming a market multiple of 15). So 12x a mid-point of $.85/share estimate gives me roughly a $10/ share target price."

    How do you get from EPS 0.40 in 2012 to EPS of 0.80-0.90? That's doubling the EPS when it only manages ~30 percent growth between 2011-2012. Fuel price as a percentage of revenue has to come down dramatically for this to happen - and looking at their 10k - they haven't been able to contained their fuel expense via hedging.

    The biggest catalyst or upside for JBLU is actually the pending approval of the AMR- US Airway merger. If they manage to reverse the opinions of DOJ - this will take away significant capacity. Which will benefit all domestic airline in general.
